To expect people wearing thongs to check their rear view before leaving the house

Nothing against thongs in themselves of course - but wasn't the point of thongs to get rid of VPL? It just seems to have moved the problem elsewhere. And it seems to be just thong wearers, you hardly ever see people flashing their Bridget Jones pants/granny knickers, do you?

I'm a teacher and have to put up with 15 year old girls deliberatly showing off their thongs all day. Very funny when their attention seeking backfires though and a boy grabs it and pulls!!

Oh I hate it hate it hate it its enough to put you off your breakfast. Its usually girls who are no stranger to a fish supper as well so they have folds of flab having over the thongs as well.

Why do these teenage girls walk around with such untoned tummies, and huge love handles, i think someone one called them muffin tops?? Flesh on show is fine, but not when there is soooooo much of it !!


BlueDaisy · 12/03/2007 12:51

Not just young girls though, its grown women too. They must see a different image in the mirror I think.

If we have any tourists here this summer they must think British people are orange with rolls of flab

A mate of mine boasts that her 7 year old wears thongs, "they are so into fashion". Fuck me.

And yes, it's always those who should cover up who decide to show the most off.


Aloveheart · 12/03/2007 13:01

oh yeah, i have seen the childrens thongs in the shops. i was horrified!


dionnelorraine · 12/03/2007 13:11

7 years old! OMG! That cant do any good for a child that age. Do they not hurt her! How awful!

Girls with thong showing = CHAV!!! Really not good!

School round here banned them. A primary school too. Which makes me that anyone would give their dds thongs to wear in the first place. And also that it was common enough for the head to have to ban them.

I often see people's walking along and wonder if they have any idea what their rear view is like. Having said that I'm not sure I'd leave the house if I had to look too closely at mine....


Aloveheart · 12/03/2007 13:14

making girls grow up to quickly such a shame loose their childhood before they are ready. dear god.


IntergalacticWalrus · 12/03/2007 13:15

Hate thongs for kids. It's just wrong wrong wrong!

I agree with the op. There's nothing worse than seeing the top of grubby pants hanging over somebody's kecks.


HappyDaddy · 12/03/2007 13:16

I really wonder at the mindset of the bloke (doubtless) who decided "hey, we could sell thongs in children's sizes, what a great idea".


Nbg · 12/03/2007 13:17

ROFL liesel

But HD! 7 years old is just plain wrong.


CODalmighty · 12/03/2007 13:18

and odnt wear htem wiht cheap trousers os oyu cna see your cellulite


HappyDaddy · 12/03/2007 13:19

Nbg, they have clothes and stuff with the playboy logo as well. DW told her she was creating a poedo's paradise but she was just saying "you'll be the same when dd gets to their age".

Reply? "oh no we fucking wont, I dont want some perv thinking it's ok to ogle my child just cos you want yours to look like dolls".

Her DH is disgusted, btw, but she dismisses him.


Nbg · 12/03/2007 13:20

or as I learnt from Cod, no butterflys or other decorative bit on the back.

ALthough personally if someone insists on flashing their arse, I'd rather see something pretty like a butterfly than a big flobby bum.


Aloveheart · 12/03/2007 13:20

I can't believe that, that's shocking!!!! My dd wouldnt' even think or want to wear something like that, fgs.


Nbg · 12/03/2007 13:21

Oh christ. Thats really
Effing Playboy stuff at 7.


Nbg · 12/03/2007 13:21

butterflies even.
